China's foreign trade up 7.9 pct in H1, surplus down


These are the same policies that the United States had forced developing countries - using both carrot and stick - to adopt and which severely impended the development of these economies and bred an unequal relationship to the global market. China's global trade surplus in June narrowed by 10.9 per cent to 41.6 per cent. For starters, countries have different inherent resources: some have oil, others copper; some grow bananas, others wheat. As with global politics, so with trade.

"China might need to restrict the market access of American companies". But it can be extremely good for any developing country that fosters a fruitful balance of inward investment and local entrepreneurship and uses the proceeds of export-led growth to invest in infrastructure and skills.

The trade war does not appear to be a hot item on China's tightly-controlled social media. With wages in China now rising rapidly, its labour-cost advantage is fast diminishing.

Third: Take on as many countries simultaneously as you can. The irony is that the country providing massive trade subsidy in agriculture and manufacturing happens to be the United States itself. David Lassoff, a company manager for California-based Incredible Gifts, is stockpiling the hats because importers have told him that the MAGA hats might be affected by the tariffs.

Once these trade connections are in place, any sudden change in tariffs will be severely disruptive.

"Looking ahead, export growth will cool in the coming months as U.S. tariffs start to bite alongside a broader softening in global demand", Julian Evans-Pritchard, Senior China Economist at Capital Economics in Singapore wrote in a note, though he noted a weaker yuan should help offset some of the decline.

The Trump administration has many concerns when it comes to trade. "Net farm income is less than what it was five years ago. Most Apple products are made in China", he said.

Exports climbed to US$42.62 billion, also a high, the Customs administration said yesterday.

Beyond some point, the potential benefits of wider trade between equally rich countries inevitably decline.

"Concerns over trade and trade wars are really having an adverse effect, less so on the USA markets than the worldwide markets, but it is certainly taking a bite". Third, the so-call "forced technology transfer". He's assuming Chinese companies and workers will bear the brunt, but that ignores global supply chains. Those companies generate jobs and revenue for China.

Swift regulatory approvals in China would allow Indian companies to boost revenue at a time when pricing scrutiny and regulatory troubles have hurt United States sales.

Opec is visibly anxious about the possible consequences.

The US has stated that the tariffs are in response to Chinese theft of intellectual property.

But it is simply too late.

Hua said that China is gradually becoming a leader in innovation and branding in the world.

China's Ministry of Commerce (MOC) released a statement Thursday regarding the Statement by the U.S. Trade Representative on Section 301 Action released on July 10.

That is not true of poorer developing economies, such as India and all of Africa, which hope to emulate China's rapid rise.

"Tariffs at the end of the day are a tax, and companies are going to have to figure out how they're going to pay that tax and it's mostly going to come through higher pricing, which is going to slow the economy down", Bergh said.

The administration's strategy will pay off if Navarro and Trump understand the interests of our trading partners better than those trading partners themselves do.
